Firm Overview:

Built on the strength of our commercial, intellectual property, and white-collar litigation practices, our Chicago office serves clients in courts throughout the United States. Our professionals include nationally prominent lawyers in those fields, as well as leading products, environmental, and mass tort trial lawyers and litigators who joined the firm in 2015. With trial experience in over half of the jurisdictions in the United States and a broad array of clients, our Chicago lawyers work closely with their counterparts in all of Steptoe’s offices.

Examples of recent matters include Steptoe successfully moving to dismiss all claims in a data breach class action filed against VTech and successfully resolving all claims against RR Donnelley in a complex patent infringement matter involving 10 patents related to web-to-print and variable-data printing products and services.
